More stories behind Salahis' photographs

Screen grab of a photo on Tareq and Michaele Salahi's Facebook page. Caption reads: 'Trumps "Apprentice" OMAROSA, with Michaele at the Green Room back stage of the Lincoln Memorial for the concert for President Obama! WOW - What a day.' (

Of course Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth is friends with Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Washington's reality show trailblazer -- she did "The Apprentice" way back in 2003 -- is pictured on the couple's Facebook album at January's inaugural concert at the Lincoln Memorial.

Actually, after the concert, it seems. Omarosa was busy doing press interviews that day but said Michaele kept bugging her to join them on the Mall. "She's a sweetheart but very, very persistent," Omarosa told us Tuesday. She finally agreed to meet them at the concert's greenroom and arrived as the crowds were leaving -- they hung out with a few remaining staffers on the scene before heading to the Salahis' waiting limo and drinks at Cafe Milano.

Unclear exactly what the couple was doing at the Lincoln Memorial and when: The captions say they sponsored the greenroom (brought the wine?), where they had their pictures taken with Jack Black and Forest Whitaker. The outdoor shots are at night, clearly after the concert was over and the Obamas had left.

(At a photo shoot Tuesday at Georgetown's Halcyon House, scheduled before the crasher controversy erupted, Michaele found herself surrounded by gawking TV news crews and paparazzi.)

So what's Omarosa think of all the outrage about the duo?

"It's a really unfair attack on the entire genre of reality TV," said the woman about to star in her own dating series, "Omarosa's Ultimate Merger." These shows, she said, only reveal what's already there: "The Salahis -- before the cameras were rolling -- were going to parties, invited or not. Everything on reality TV is magnified 100 percent."

When do you see people with 'real' money showing off like this on forums like Facebook? Just one more example that the Salahi's are self-promoter wanna-be celebrities. I wonder if they hang with people like Dan Snyder and Michael Saylor and whether they consider the Salahi's friends.

As anyone can notice in their photos there is never ever anyone around. They arrive after the event and take photos and put captions to make people think they were really there. As much as they like publicity they would at least take pictures of the people but they can't because they weren't there.
